Painting LARGE! with Emily Passman

 

Painting LARGE!

ALL LEVELS

MEDIUM: OILS AND ACRYLICS

Emily Passman

Break through the fears and work large!  Let go of the worry of “how will I fill the space, it’s too big?” and begin to see the possibilities of painting on larger surfaces.  Emily will lead you with exercises to break into new and exciting size with your work.  This class will cover the division of space, value control and color power.  Be willing to squeeze out more paint than you are generally comfortable with.

Draw and Quick Paint (Figure in Space and Still Life) with Ron Krouk

Draw and Quick Paint (Figure in Space and Still Life)

MEDIUM: CHARCOAL, OIL, ACRYLICS

ALL LEVELS

Ron Krouk

Each class is roughly divided between drawing and painting. The drawing time is focused on the practice of three skills which directly impact painting and reward continued practice: gesture, contour and straight lines.  Through these, we’ll understand why people say that “drawing is about seeing,” as we explore composition, proportion, shape, value, space and mark-making as they apply to painting in oil or acrylic.  Paintings will be created faster than you may be used to in order to focus on underlying structure and color and value relationships rather than on detail and “effects.” The class benefits from including people at all levels of experience and each class is followed up with a summary of the “lessons” learned and images of the work done.

(This class will include a model fee paid directly to the instructor.)

The Unique Image: Drawing and Painting with Acrylics with Kathy Deflice-Secor

The Unique Image:
Drawing and Painting with Acrylics 

MEDIUM: ACRYLICS

Kathy Deflice-Secor

Explore your imagination and strengthen your mark making.  Push beyond what you know and tap into your intuitive nature.  Whether your work is abstract or representational, using your intuitive hand while responding to materials will bring out spontaneity and a different way to approach your work.  The surface you work on can influence the outcome.  Paper allows for a fresh and direct way of working.  Canvas and panel provide more support for richer application of materials.  This class will include working on a combination of surfaces to widen and enhance the variety of your work.
In this class, Kathy will assist you to thoughtfully explore your unique imagery.  During each session there will be exercises to flex your imagination and mark-making along with demonstrations and critiques.

Alchemy of Color Part I with Martha Wakefield

Alchemy of Color Part I

ALL LEVELS

MEDIUM: ALL MEDIUMS

Martha Wakefield

“The artist's alertness to the coloristic demands of each picture, the ability to respond to the picture's needs, to feed the color until its appetite is satiated; these are the true measures of a colorist's talent,” says Wolf Kahn. 

In these classes we will study the language of color and each pigment’s personality to build a personal palette.  Enhance your color knowledge through exercises, demos and by examining past and contemporary artists’ oeuvre.  Gain knowledge in the mysteries and properties of color from understanding the psychology, perception and energy of colors for creating dynamic, expressive and meaningful paintings.
